About Amy & Paul Blessington

Retired couple enjoying the beautiful island of Hawaii

Amy & Paul Blessington purchased this House in 2009

Why Amy & Paul Blessington chose Hōlualoa

Finding the perfect location in Kona is not so easy. You want to have great ocean views in a quiet neighborhood away from the highway, while still being minutes away from the beach, restaurants and shopping. The Registration ID# for this property is: GE-162-723-4304-02

What makes this House unique

Less than 10 minutes away is Kahalu’u beach. Kahalu’u is widely regarded as one of the top snorkeling spots in all of Hawaii. The variety and quantity of tropical fish at Kahalu’u is fantastic. For those first getting used to snorkeling, the private pool is a safe and easy way to get used to wearing a mask and snorkel. The location is also close to many other beautiful beaches, restaurants and shops. Choose among a wide variety of ocean and outdoor activities or simply just relax on the patio enjoying an intense ocean sunset.

                                                                      Michelle H.Graham

                                                                      My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home for 3 nights in March 2017. The home was spotless, and had so many extras. We really appreciated the beach chairs, sun umbrella and small cooler on our trips to the beach. We loved sitting on the porch and listening to the birds as we enjoyed the beautiful view. We only crossed paths with Paul and Amy one time, and they were very gracious hosts. The only drawback was the bed seemed small for my husband and I, as we are used to a king sized bed. ( I think this is a double), but overall I would rate our experience as top notch and hope to stay here again.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

Everything was extremely well put-together. The inclusion of ready to cook kitchen and all of the necessary beach/snorkeling items was a great bonus. The unit was extremely clean and the small subtle touches were evident. We even used the grill to make a dinner in that worked out great. The host do a great job of respecting your privacy they won't bother you unless you need something. Having Netflix on the television was super sweet! We would definitely stay there again if and when we return back to the Big Island. Mahalo!

                                                                      Location was ideal for us! It was very easy to go down to Kailua Village and explore the ocean-front area, and then get away from it all, back to the house on the hill. The rental had everything we could have imagined we needed, plus a lot of little thoughtful "extras", that we have not always found when renting before. We hadn't been to the Big Island before, so we did five day-long trips to see other areas, and found that being based in Kona allowed us to do that quite easily. At the end of a day of travel it was lovely to relax and look out at the ocean.

                                                                      Very nice option with accomodating, friendly owners

                                                                      We enjoyed our stay here. Paul was very friendly and helpful with local knowledge, but allowed us to have privacy. The spaces are nice with a private patio and use of the pool, kitchen was ample size, bathroom was nice, having a washer and dryer was a plus, use of their snorkel and beach gear was helpful. I am admittedly a little picky on bed mattresses and prefer a soft mattress. The bed was a little firm for my liking and made sleeping a bit difficult for me, but my wife had no problems with it. Thanks Paul!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Very happy you enjoyed your stay. Some guest really like a firm mattress and some like a soft mattress. For this reason, we provide a medium mattress…not too firm or too soft. We also provide a memory foam topper for guest who like their mattress softer. And, unlike even 4-star hotels, we replace our mattress before it gets out of shape.
